LANDSCAPE: DRAWING AS SOURCE
This workshop will explore the relationship between drawing and oil painting through the motif of landscape. How can drawing inform and enrich my painting practice? What is available through painting from drawings as opposed to directly from the motif itself? What may I discover about my way as a painter by experimenting through the practice of drawing? Working outdoors, in the morning we will be experimenting with a variety of means and ways of drawing - pencil, charcoal, ink - slow and analytic, gestural and intuitive. In the afternoons, we will explore how to take the attitudes found in drawing and bring them into our painting.
This Workshop takes place from the 28th July - 5th of August 2020. The cost is $1,800 which includes tuition, shared cottage with private bedroom for 8 nights, lunch/dinner/dessert/tea/coffee, collection/delivery to the bus/train stations in Ballina, full use of the Ballinglen Library & facilities 24/7.
